The Vinton County Courier's birthday might be in August (our first edition came out Aug. 4, 1971), but our newspaper's ancestry celebrates 150 years this week. There were many predecessors to The Courier, but among the earliest was the McArthur Democrat-Enquirer, which published for the first time on Jan. 24, 1867. That means The Courier turns 46 this year, but our family stretches back 150 years.
